Watch me unbox (and break) the Intel Box Master System


Including an i7-6700K and 750 series SSD
Aug 21
// Jed Whitaker
Intel decided to send us two giant boxes full of things, including its hot new 8-bit Intel Box Master System featuring wood side paneling to unbox on video. I couldn't possibly do a straight unboxing video -- that isn't my s...

Amber's Unboxing Series: Loot Crate for February


Let's take a look at what's inside last month's mystery box
Mar 11

At the end of February, I finally received my long-awaited Loot Crate in the mail! If you're not familiar with what exactly a Loot Crate is, it's a monthly subscription box full of nerdy toys and items. Each one has a variet...

Your microtransaction money at work

People tend to hate microtransactions as a rule, but like any other tool, the relative quality all depends on how they're used. Make a game that suits a small but passionate audience who values the opportunity to purchase ne...

Some people say GG is the best thing in gaming today. Others say it's all flash and no substance, existing to drawing attention to itself and nothing more. No, I'm not talking about that GG. I'm talking about Guilty Gear, th...

I unboxed the New 3DS XL and tickled its sensitive nub

Jan 15 // Bill Zoeker
The device itself is sexy. Shiny and smooth, but with a nice subtle texture. After recording this video, I gnashed my genitals against it, achieving exceptional erotic satisfaction. You can't prove I didn't. There are a few changes in design that immediately screamed of improvement to me. The volume slider is now located on the left side of the screen panel, hopefully eliminating the problem of accidentally nudging it to maximum and letting everybody on the bus know you're taint-deep in Style Savvy: Trendsetters. The slot for the game cartridge has also been moved to the southern edge of the handheld portion of the system, hopefully reducing premature ejections. However, I think it sucks this new edition still lacks any sort of latch or cover to prevent the cart from being loosed by a minimal, accidental nudge. There will be a more thorough analysis of the New Nintendo 3DS hardware coming to you by Chris Carter soon. In the meantime, enjoy looking at my hands. [Disclosure Notice: The subject of this post was received and demonstrated at a Nintendo-hosted event in San Francisco. I feel like the event started a little earlier than it needed to, but they had Dim Sum and pizza, so that was pretty cool. Below is a picture of the Dim Sum I ate.]

Cue people being mad because I think something could be better
After a Nintendo press event yesterday, I was sent home with a review unit of the New Nintendo 3DS XL. I figured it would be a good idea to record my opening of it so that I could share my trademarked cynical indignation wit...

Unless you have access to cool things like Daft Punk sets and laser beams, unboxing videos suck. They're all bad. I've even seen ones where people are eating while unboxing, and talking with their mouths full. Gross, right? ...

Debug PS4 unboxed for your viewing pleasure


Assuming you derive pleasure from such things
Oct 17
// Jordan Devore
Here's a lively unboxing of the PlayStation 4 debug console from Computer Bild TV. While the packaging is obviously not what we'll see for the retail versions of the system, the unit itself is consistent with the consumer-grade models -- on the outside, at least. Living vicariously through this guy. It's all I've got.

Did you know that Rhythm Heaven Fever was getting a special edition? Neither did I. Then I got this box in the mail this morning. I'm pretty sure that this special edition won't be sold in stores, but if Nintendo decides to change its mind on that, they're sure to make a killing when the game hits stores on February 13th. Check out the video and you'll understand what I mean.
